Koreans in US Call for Independent, Peaceful Reunification
Pyongyang, April 24 (KCNA) -- Minjok Thongsin, an Internet newspaper of Koreans in the U.S., on April 18 carried an article calling for achieving the independent and peaceful reunification of the country through the great national unity.

64 years have passed since the Joint Conference of Representatives of Political Parties and Public Organizations in North and South was convened in Pyongyang in April 1948 in order to prevent the nation's division, the article said, and went on:

The north is striving to achieve the peaceful reunification of the country through national solidarity, but the south Korean authorities are still standing aloof from the compatriots and turning their faces away from reconciliation and cooperation between the south and the north.

The Lee Myung Bak "government" has consistently followed policies subservient to the U.S. and Japan and become all the more undisguised in its moves against the nation, peace and reunification.

Without the great national unity, it is impossible to achieve the independent and peaceful reunification of the country, the cherished desire of all the Koreans.

They should preserve and adhere to the June 15 joint declaration and the October 4 declaration under the banner of the great national unity.

This is the way out for the Korean nation and the only road of carving out a bright future, the article concluded.
